A Good Sign.

It’s been a rough few days. I had a wonderful time at Enchanted Rock on my birthday (Saturday), but I spent most of the day thinking about the things that were missing rather than the things I had. Sunday was better because I spent the entire day working on an editing project. I enjoyed it and got my project done, so that was a huge victory. On Monday, I finished getting ready for Christmas, which included mailing some packages and finishing some last-minute shopping. I got all the shopping done and managed to pick up a couple of things for myself. I bought a couple of prints for my new bathroom, so now the walls aren’t quite so bare.  What do you think?

Finding them was fun, but the evening felt pretty lonely. I was happy to leave my sister’s house and get back to the security of my own.

Today was better. I started my day by sleeping in and then going for a run. Then I had Dad over for coffee before heading to my parents’ place for the day. I spent much of the day playing games – Apples to Apples, Rummikub, and Backgammon – and then came home, paid bills and wrote thank you notes.

The best part of today was that I caught myself humming. I do that sometimes, but I don’t think I’ve done it much, if at all, in the last couple of months. But tonight, as I put a few things away around the house, I realized I was humming. And I thought that was a good sign.

Merry Christmas, dear friends. I hope you got to spend the holiday with people you love.
